The ITV show was thrown into darkness midway through an interview with DIY SOS star Nick Knowles as he was chatting to host Lorraine Kelly.

Nick was heard telling Lorraine about the show’s future: “We aim to do bigger and better things all the time. We’ve got various amazing projects coming up this year.
“We’ve got six commissions until the end of the year and then outside of that I’ve been looking at how I can extend that in a much bigger way…”
It was then that the programme was plunged into darkness and the two stars were left bathed in a blue light.
“Could you get one of your builders in?” Lorraine joked to him as he added: “We need a torch!”
Luckily, order was soon restored to the studio as the lights came back on and the interview continued.
“I don’t know what happened there!” Lorraine exclaimed.
“Is Billy in the house, our electrician?” quipped Nick as Lorraine apologised for the gaffe which she described as “strange”.
“That was really odd, that’s the effect of you,” she told him.
But Nick had other ideas and told her: “I think that was Piers Morgan leaving the building. He has that effect on the studio.”
“It’s usually lightning and people crying in corners! That was great,” Lorraine joked as they were both reduced to stitches.
Lorraine airs weekdays on ITV at 8.30am.
